Rainwater Collection Plans Part 2: New Legislation Allowing Collection??
Again, like with many of my other governmental inquiries through email, I have as yet received a reply from the Water Resources board regarding the avenues available for rainwater collection on an urban farm. Â And then, a few weeks ago, I heard a report (or a followup at the very least) that legislators here in Utah are looking into reforming the Water Rights laws to allow for residential rainwater collection. Â So why did it take me so long to reply? Â Because I can't find any reference to the followup report on KSL, nor can I find a reference online from any legislator that is taking up the fight. Â So in spite of the total lack of references, I'm reassured that someone somewhere is willing to take up this fight. Â Perhaps that is why I am not getting a reply from the Water Resources board. Â Perhaps... or perhaps it is because I made the inquiry via email. Â Either way, it looks as though sometime in the future it may be possible to build and collect rainwater for use on an urban farm. Â Unfortunately I don't know when or who is fighting for this. Â Perhaps it's time I contact my local legislator again. Â Maybe I'll get a reply.
